Places in Bahrain
Around Bahrain Island
Although dominated by its capital city, there’s more to Bahrain Island than Manama, as those coming for the Grand Prix are sure to discover. The island is particularly rich in archaeological sites. Bahrain is small so the main sights make easily accessible day trips from the capital by car, and some can even be visited by bus.
Just over the causeways from Bahrain Island, Muharraq Island could in many respects belong to a different country. With some interesting old houses, a fort and a shore full of moored dhows and lobster pots, there’s enough to keep visitors occupied in the atmospheric back streets for at least half a day.
